Make your own homemade peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats with this easy recipe.
My dogs love these peanutbutter and pumpkindogtreat. They are super easy to make too. Who doesn’t love to spoil their pets??? I had been searching Pinterest for dogtreatrecipes but didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, so I pulled out these ingredients and made up my own. They turned out great and took only 25 min from start to finish.

The vet told me once that pumpkin was good for dogs and I already knew that my pups love peanutbutter, so I decided to combine the two. After doing some research I found that pumpkin has many benefits for dogs.
It promotes urinary health. If your dog struggles with incontinence try adding a little pumpkin to their diet.
Pumpkin helps with digestive health and regularity. It is a great source of fiber and may help with your dogs stomach issues.
Canned pumpkin is also low in calories. If you have a dog that needs to lose a few pounds, try replacing a small amount of their normal food with canned pumpkin.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the eggs, peanutbutter and pumpkin and beat it with the mixer.
Once everything was mixed together well I added in the flour. Don’t add it all at once or your mixer will get angry… I added about 1/2 cup at a time. The mixture is going to get very sticky and thick.
Next, put the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it until it formed a ball. Then I rolled it about 1/4″ thick. I used a small cookie cutter because my dogs don’t need huge dog treats but you can use any Cookie Cutter you want. I personally love these cute dog bone shaped cookie cutters.
I placed the cut out dog treats onto a baking sheet and popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 min. They turned out great. They aren’t a crunchy treat, they are soft and chewy.
Once they have cooled, put them into an airtight container. I love using my super cute dog treat container that I made using a Dollar Store container and scrap booking stickers. My one year old thinks the dog treats are cookies for her. I suppose they wouldn’t hurt her but I try to divert her attention and give her something else.
